Christmas Tonglen Meditation

Standard

The children are sleeping,
the presents placed strategically,
our bellies are full,
we lie in our beds warm and safe.
What an enchanted life this is!
On the medium of the breath
I send out the aspiration
that all beings
know safety and comfort,
that all beings be nourished,
that all beings experience the joy
of giving and receiving.
Some of the most important gifts
are the ones we cannot see or touch;
they are felt in the heart.
On the medium of the breath
I send out the aspiration
that all beings be loved
that all beings feel a sense of belonging
that all beings experience
true happiness, true fulfillment.
Breathing in I feel gratitude
breathing out I give thanks.
May all beings experience peace.

    • Thank you Theresa! Thank you for being there this year. Your support and encouragement have meant so much to me. I hope that you and your family enjoyed a wonderful Christmas. Are your kiddos on holiday? Mine are all this week. I’m hoping to stay sane and do some fun things with them while they have a break from the daily routine. ❤ 🙂
